I’ve been hard at work on my new machine this week. Or mostly hard at work. Except for Wednesday night when I fell asleep at 7, Thursday night which was my Dad’s birthday, Friday night when I fell asleep at 7, and Saturday night when I went to my parents. Or Sunday morning when I slept until noon. But man, Tuesday night and Sunday afternoon/evening, I worked :D. The good news is I might be caught up on sleep now.
Today is Monday, which usually means that I’m at home, but with Canada Day tomorrow, Sharon on holiday, and Janice at a funeral so Katie has to work at QFTH… it means that Rocky and I are here, at work, on a Monday, all by ourselves. Which isn’t the biggest deal, but I was finally getting used to having 2 days off in a row again. Tomorrow is Canada Day though, and we are having dinner with friends before heading off to the fireworks, so should be a good day. Though likely not productive. As I plan to sleep until noon again 😀
Anyways, some quilts.
This is my Urban Tiles quilt. Which as I was making it, I was really not very fond of. It’s grown on me a bit, but still isn’t my favorite. It was the first quilt I did on my new machine, and so I did have a lot of fun quilting it. I love this quilting design too, so fun and easy, but still quite striking.
I have to say, it probably looks better in this picture than in real life, though isn’t to bad in real life either. As I was quilting it I thought for sure I was ruining it, though now that it is off the fame, I’ve become a bit happier with it. I printed the panel at Spoonflower, then quilted it at home.
So back to Dad’s quilt then…
I haven’t taken any very good pictures of it, this one is sitting on my couch at home, but you get the idea. I think it turned out fairly well. I particularly love the border. This quilt actually has 3 layers of batting in it, as the new poly batting we have is so thin I decided it needed two layers of it.
And now on the frame is my Sassy Stars quilt, with Jungle Ave fabrics.
I’m having a lot of fun quilting this one. Of course, after I had started I thought of a million better ways to quilt the black areas, but I’m still happy with what I did. I have noticed I have been quilting everything basically the same recently though. I need to think of some new ideas :D.
Anyways, that’s it for me. Back to work!
